Meaning:God is gracious
Shane has certifiable Irish roots, but it has some cowboy in him, too, thanks to a 1953 Wild West movie of the same name. Shane stems from the Irish name Seán, meaning "God is gracious." Though it’s considered gender-neutral, there are far more boys called Shane than girls. For this reason, it makes for a fresh and modern take when gifted to beautiful baby girls. Variations for both sexes include Shawn, Seán, Shayne, Shannon, and Shana.
